About Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is one of the most well known techniques of massage, and a system that uses a variety of strokes applied with oil to the soft tissue (muscular) structure of the human body.

Swedish massage can help remove toxins, improve circulation, enhance mobility in the joints, deliver nutrients to tissues and cells more efficiently and help in recovery from sprains, strains and trauma by breaking down adhesions (scar tissue).

This technique has a beneficial impact not only on the physical body but on the mental and emotional being as well, by promoting relaxation through the stimulated release of endorphins and enkephalins (the body's natural painkillers).

The release of stress from Swedish massage also boosts the immune system.
